The Foreign Ministry said that Slovenia was shocked at Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny being sentenced to prison.
“We urge his immediate and unconditional release,” it added on Twitter. A court in Moscow changed today Navalny’s suspended sentence to three and a half years in prison for violating the terms of his probation while he was recuperating in Germany from nerve-agent poisoning. The prison sentence will be shortened by the time he has already served under house arrest.
